I used fresh carrots,red bell pepper, and onion instead of frozen. This took a bit more time but the taste difference was worth it. I added all of the veggies when the pasta was about 1/2 way done. Fresh lime juice right before serving finished this dish nicely.

If you can't find a bagged vegetable medley for this easy noodle bowl, choose 12 ounces of cut vegetables from your market's salad bar and create your own mix.

There are much better recipes out there for peanut sauce without much extra work or calories. This needed flavor and something fresh like lime juice or cilantro. We added sweet chili sauce but it just felt like eating a bowl of heavy noodles soaked in watery peanut butter. I won't bother again.
Great as a midweek meal, also great as lunch the next day.
Love love love this recipe. I make it often so I don't really measure the ingredients anymore as I like to add more chile-garlic sauce anyway. The sauce comes out thin at first so I usually let it sit on medium-low for about 10 minutes and the sauce will thicken up - the longer you leave it, the thicker the sauce gets. Delicious and great leftovers as well.
I used 1 tsp of chili paste sauce. It needs more to perk it up. Otherwise, I would make this again with more of the chili to perk it up.
